Rocky Patel Ocean Club

I decided to do yet another Rocky Patel review, hey the guys is blending a lot of cigars what can I say. Today we are reviewing the Rocky Patel Ocean Club. This cigar is composed of mexican binder and a Dominican and Nicaraguan filler. The wrapper is from Nicaragua as well. We are smoking the robust box press which is a 5.5×50.  I do say in the video that this is a Holt’s exclusive and it appears I was wrong I have found it on other sites, just wanted to clarify my mistake.

Pre Light- The cigar is very toothy and the seam lines on the wrapper are very noticeable. The cigar isn’t packed tight but it doesn’t look like it will affect anything. The smell off the wrapper is a sweet smell and on the foot it reminds me of molasses. Cold draw is perfect just a little snug with that molasses and sweet note.

1st Half- I’m picking up a really nice cayenne pepper note on the retrohale and lot’s of oak notes which is the dominate flavor. In the background there is a touch of sweetness and leather. Burn is little wavy but always corrects itself. The ash is nice and white and holds on over 1 inch. So far I’m enjoying this cigar much better then I did the 6×60.

Final Half- Not much has changed at all this isn’t a complex cigar but it is very straight forward and delicious. The oak note remains the boss being the most noticeable flavor. Still getting the pepper and the sweetness along with the leather. Even at the final half this cigar produces lot’s of dense smoke. So take a look below and check out the video to get more info on my thoughts of the Rocky Patel Ocean Club.

  1. Mike, I was thinking the same thing about this cigar being a Holts exclusive but I guess it can be found elsewhere. I never used a V-cut. I’m thinking of buying a v-cutter but do you think it makes a difference? Is it preferable to use on a certain size cigar (obviously not on a lancero)? Maybe a question for Kurt on Stogie411?? Most of what Xikar sells is straight cut so maybe they do have a preference. Thanks for the review.

    • John I think the new Xikar v cut I have is the best as for your question I will be sure to ask it to Kurt or get your butt over to Stogie 411 and ask him lol. I for one believe you can use a v cut on any size smoke since you can control how far to place the cigar into the cutter. Thanks my friend for all your support.

  2. Great review. I actually prefer the picture without the screen on the back. It’s clean and the picture looks great. I used a v-cut for quite some time, but I’ve transitioned to the double bladed guillotine. That’s just my preference. But anyway, keep ‘em coming Mike!

    • Thanks Jeff I try mixing things up during spring and summer pics and reviews outside but winter in doors. Thanks for the support.

  3. Thanks for the review Mike, I smoked that cigar in the 6×60 and didn’t really dig it I mean it was ok as it was given to me but I wouldn’t search them out. Keep up the good work buddy.

    • Matt I took smoked the 6×60 and thought this smaller vitola was a lot better in the flavor profile as well as being a smoother smoke. Thanks for all the support.

    First of all I like the new guy lol. As for the cigar I always think the house blends from major brands always seem mediocre

    • I have to agree the new guy is ok alittle bitchy but ok lol. I agree to a point with your comment especially with RP doing so many different blends.
